With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, FishOnAdventures is pleased to confirm the resumption of charter services. Additional sanitizing procedures have been implemented in accordance with local health authority recommendations to ensure a safe and enjoyable day on the water.

Two departure locations are available for your convenience. The primary location in Port Moody is just 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Alternatively, you can board in North Vancouver at Pier 7 (St Roch Dock) next to Lonsdale Quay. This is also accessible from downtown Vancouver via transit (12-minute SeaBus passenger ferry across Burrard Inlet).

Let Captain Mark Shannon take you to the most productive areas to experience the thrill of battling these powerful fish. With over 25 years of experience fishing the west coast, he knows these waters well and looks forward to welcoming anglers of any skill level aboard.

Head out on Capt. Mark’s 24’ Robalo walkaround. There’s plenty of space for up to 4 guests with a large deck area for fighting fish. Comfortable seating, a fridge, and a flush toilet ensure you’ll have an enjoyable day on the water. Powered by twin 200 HP Yamaha engines, the boat has plenty of power to reach the best fishing spots quickly!

Equipped with the latest Garmin electronics, including a fishfinder, GPS, and radar, you’ll have no trouble finding the most productive fishing grounds. Capt. Mark will have you trolling with bait and a variety of artificial lures to target Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Pink, and Chum Salmon. When in season, you’ll also drop crab traps to target great-tasting Dungeness Crab.

At the end of your trip, your captain will clean and fillet your catch for you. Just bring a suitable ice box to keep it fresh during your journey home.
During the day, you’ll want your own drinks and snacks to stay refreshed while you enjoy the stunning west coast views. Let FishOnAdventures give you an unforgettable experience!

I have grown up fishing on the west coast. Fishing for Cutthroat Trout in local creeks became fly fishing for Steelhead and Salmon in local rivers to eventually mooching and trolling for Salmon in the local waters. Always planning for the next fishing trip, I have a passion for being on the water and sharing the experience with others.
